currently have afib/75 yrs old/blood pressure now under control-do have varicose veins
You will need to take something for the clotting for the rest of your life. afib can cause a clot to be moved into dangerous areas like the brain, heart, or lungs. There are new ones that don't require the testing that coumadin needs. One word tho, if you're going to ask your dr about them, you have to make sure what your medicare will pay for. Mine has the newer ones in tier 5, which isn't much better then not helping at all.
